    Darwinia is such an odd title, it gave me the same initial impression that Pikmin did when it came out on the Gamecube..

    It's hard to put a finger on exactly what it is about Darwinia that makes it seem out of place. Not to say that the feeling is necessarily bad, or disruptive to gameplay and other mechanics, just that...

    Darwinia... weird, obscure, bizarre, really fun?

    Darwinia is an amazing game. The gameplay is like none other. It's a real-time strategy third-person shooter. In the game you control programs. In the demo there are 3 programs you control. First ther...

    This game just rocks hard, totally fresh and different than anything I have ever played before.

    Well in short I looked at this game and thought to myself "this looks stupid", but curiosity got the best of me and I downloaded the demo via steam. I ran through a nicely laid out demo and after I w...

    A somehow deeply moving story and quirky personality make this game the best $20 you'll ever spend on a game.

    When I first saw the screenshots for Darwinia, I was very skeptical. It seemed it would be doomed to the same fate of mediocre reviews as countless other budget titles. Then, the reviews came pouring ...

    In the computer world of thugs, rebellion, and sin there's a little game called Darwinia.

    Rated on December 18, 2005 by zaethro

    I expected to buy Darwinia at some point. I had heard about it over the '05 summer and figured that I would do the society of small developers a good deed, seeing as how nothing much of note was on th...

    A basic but fun game.

    Rated on December 19, 2005 by peterfg

    Darwinia is a highly addictive game that makes you keep wanting to play more. The interface is simple and easy to use once you get the hang of it. One of the disappointments is that there is less to...

    Finally something new!

    Rated on December 20, 2005 by xyriel

    I've been looking for a game that pushed the limits of what had been done, that brought a new gaming experience and had originality. I really wasn't expecting this from a ordinary looking game like D...

    Simple interface, simple style graphics, mind-boggling depth. This is an incredible video game worthy of all praise!

    Rated on May 15, 2006 by Shub-Niggurath

    Darwinia is an action packed real time strategy game with a simple, straight-forward concept and a painfully simple interface. But don’t let any of that fool you. This game is bursting at the seams ...
